Ansible to Configure Syslog

15 Dec 2021 » ansible, automation, configuration

Easy rsyslog configuration of remote servers via ansible:

- name: Update Syslog
  remote_user: ansible-system
  gather_facts: true
  hosts: all
  become: yes
  become_user: root
  become_method: sudo

    - name: Copy Rsyslog Template
        src: rsyslog.conf.j2
        dest: /etc/rsyslog.conf
        owner: root
        group: root
        mode: '0644'

    - name: Reload Syslog Service
      service: name=rsyslog state=restarted

And then appending this line to the end of the conf file via a template file rsyslog.conf.j2:
